I'm a music enthusiast and foodie looking for new places and experiences.

Joining a band of modern brunch spots
The new kid on the block, just a stone's throw away from Lidcombe station, Bunker 64 generally impresses with a two storey lot and brunch menu classics.

On a lazy Sunday, my friend and I visited this cafe which was at a moderate capacity at about 12pm. At first glances, it was nothing too fancy with plastic grey chairs lined up against the wall. It was not until we walked upstairs did I see floral displays on the walls and a plant friendly vibe with small pot plants along the window.

We had collected menus from the counter below but it seemed that we had to order also from the counter downstairs. After a quick glance at the menu, I decided on the baked eggs with chorizo. I can never stray too far away from some good baked eggs with cherry tomatoes and chorizo.

My friend went for the smashed avocado toast with halloumi. For drinks, I chose a Japanese green tea (iced) whereas my friend chose an iced latte.

Perhaps the most disappointing part of the experience was how the green tea was presented. It was in a tall glass with a T2 teabag hanging for its life on the rim of the glass. It tasted exceptionally watered down.

I did notice they had a full array of stock of Pablo and Rusty's famous coffee beans and to the normal coffee lover, yours truly is not one of them, this was probably going to make for tasty coffee.

The flavours in my baked eggs dish was quite delicious with a little kick of spice and a thick consistency. The eggs were however overcooked. The presentation of the food was very insta-friendly as you may be able to tell from the pictures below.

Reports of my friend's dish proved to be a little more positive than my own experience with much praise for the halloumi and quality of smashed avocado.

I had a side of pickled jalapenos which I tried regretfully but I can see that the spice aficionado may have a jolly good time.

The atmosphere was very calming and though the views from our window were only trains which would pass by, it was a comforting backdrop to our meal.

It is perhaps not a place I would return to for my next brunch adventure but it is a place of convenience and like many others in the cafe at the time, constitutes as a great place to study.
